Am I the only one who doesn't dig this artstyle?

Eh, might just be that I'm getting bored with Nintendo games.

Wish a game in this style would game out for the Wii U.

I can really dig the new "cartoon" style.  I think that this Link would have done much better in both Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks.  It looks great.  I need to pre order this one.

So yeah, I've been debating like forever, which one is my favorite SNES game: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past or Super Metroid and now that this game is coming out, I'm really hoping for a proper sequel for Super Metroid as well... But is it just me or would The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds look a lot better if it simply had a smooth HD-version of the original game's 2D graphics? These current 3D models look quite bad...

I'm all over for Link to the Past style gameplay, my favorite Zelda game, but those 3D characters here look just awful, especially faces. I'm not really sure what they were going for here, just hoping they won't distract too much from gameplay.

Looks good, I'm hoping that Nintendo releases A Link to the Past on the 3DS eShop because I REALLY want to play that game before diving into this one.

I'm not digging the art style on the characters, but I'm sure the actual game is going to be fantastic.

... So the bad guy is Kefka?

Anyway, the rest of the game looks acceptable. Anything to hear that music again =)

I am the biggest Zelda fanboy but..... something about the art style they have used here is really putting me off this game (which is odd for nintendo as they are usually spot on) maybe i will feel different when its in my hands and im playing it.... otherwise it looks like Windwaker HD might be the only Zelda game i enjoy this year.

Oh god. The graphics look worse than Phantom Hourglass.

Well, how do you want it to look?  Aren't there enough gritty/realistic/muscular styles out there already?

Nintendo is pretty much the last company to release expensive AA-Games, with cutsy and colorful graphics.

@MJV1989 Given the fact, that a 3DS is close a N64 technically, the models look quite decent I think. :P

XD I didn't even notice that until I read your comment, haha. My sister rolled her eyes when she saw it.

@gnosticlamb I feel the same way. In my opinion, Link to the Past looks way better.

@anab0lic I hear you. The characters are among Nintendo's worse designs, for sure. Oh well.

Artstyle is fresh and i'm all for it. Go back to play toon Link if you cant handle it.

It doesn't. Not in any way shape or form. No go to hell, troll.

@hochstreck @MJV1989 The N64 was the first console me and my brother had, but come on that thing is ancient with it's blocky graphics by today's standards!

@hellgast0 @TheAlmightyCow if that's true, you can't play videos anymore with adblock then **** gamespot, wont't disable adblock because of their stupid ads. I'll watch on youtube. No ads there. Once again, screw you, gamespot.

@zeca04 Excuse me, but did you just say that there are no ads on youtube? Because you sir are going to have a bad time if you think youtube is ad-free.

@zeca04 @hellgast0 @TheAlmightyCow Whoah there Sport. It's a bug and we're working on fixing it. 

Update: We're pushing code constantly so things will be changing bit by bit to help get things back to stable.
